U.S. Department of Education Adult College Completion Tool Kit

October 08, 2012

The U.S. Department of Education has created an Adult College Tool Kit to assist educators in addressing college access, quality, and completion. The tool kit is designed to help adult learners, adults in corrections, veterans, and skilled immigrants transition to college. The tool kit focuses on three areas for adults transitioning to college: access, quality, and completion. The area of access highlights academic preparation, financial resources, as well as other supports to help students prepare for college. The area of quality is grounded in evidenced-based practices to help services prepare adult learners for postsecondary education. Last but not least, the area of completion provides an overview of administrative policies and programmatic approaches to encourage student motivation as well as persistence in the postsecondary education settings.
